Have you got any particular tools (besides nail polish of course!) that you would recommend?
UPDATE: I have added more products to my essentials. View my updated reviews here.
I certainly do! I posted my nail prep essentials before (which you can find here ) but I have been wanting to do a nail art tools one too, so what a perfect opportunity!
These right here are my nail art rocks. I use them every week (as you can tell from how messy they have become!)
1. My absolute favorite thing I use are my Migi Nail Art pens! I searched for such a long time to find nail art pens that worked well and didn’t clog up and these babies are amazing! I’ve had them for over 2 years and they are still going strong. I don’t think I’ve done more than maybe 4 nail sets without them. Definitely the best investment I’ve ever made when it comes to my nails.
2. Whenever I have to use colors that I don’t have in pen form, or when I want to do bigger designs, I use little nail brushes or a dotting tool. Mine are due for replacing but they are so essential. Make sure you keep your brushes clean! I took awful care of mine when I first got them and now they are stiff and not as great as they should be anymore.
3. The last brush was a gift from heynicenails and let me tell you, it is a life saver! I dip it in acetone and use it to clean up the polish on my cuticles after I have finished painting my nails. Clean cuticles really give nails that sharp finish that frames the great work you do so nicely. And let’s face it, everyone makes a mess of their cuticles when painting their nails, it’s only natural. But with this brush it is so very easy to clean up at the end!
I know this isn’t really essential to the review but I wanted to show you how I keep it all together. I searched for months to find a perfect little case that fit everything I needed. It’s like my nail art emergency essentials kit.
I hope this helped! Let me know if you have any more questions about what I use!
